Matt Heard examines what it means to be made in the image of God, starting at Genesis 1 and going through the Epistles of Paul. He shows the relationship between God's image and human longings. In simple language he explains what they are, where they come from, and why dealing with them superficially doesn't satisfy.
Heard defines eternal life, which will be enjoyed in an undiluted state in heaven but which begins at the moment of rebirth. Jesus is more than the Way and the Truth; he is the Life. Experiencing this life is what God had in mind when he made us in his image.
